Common Core wants students to write multiple paragraphs but before they can do that, they need to be able to write just one paragraph. This resource scaffolds your students through everything they need to start writing a paragraph!

See the preview for details!

This resource begins with your students gaining knowledge about what paragraphs are and then analyzing sample paragraphs to learn the different parts. Students will explore topic sentences, supporting details, and concluding sentences of paragraphs. Then they will begin looking at each of those individually through a variety of activities (that are differentiated!) to help them work their way up to the cumulating activity of creating a "paragraph sandwich."

With This Resource You'll Get:

✓ Anchor Charts to help students understand the structure of paragraphs and their "rules" (including student pages)

✓ Practice pages for exploring the parts of a paragraph

✓ Pages to practice identifying the topic and topic sentences of a paragraph

✓ Activities that explore supporting details

✓ Sentences that can be ordered into a structured paragraph

✓ Graphic Organizers for creating a paragraph

✓ Guided Practice "Build-a-Paragraph" booklet

✓ Build a Paragraph Sandwich
A Google Slides version so that your students can complete it digitally if you prefer!
